The spin ice materials Ho_{2}Ti_{2}O_{7} and Dy_{2}Ti_{2}O_{7} are by now perhaps the best-studied classical frustrated magnets. A crucial step towards the understanding of their low temperature behavior-both regarding their unusual dynamical properties and the possibility of observing their quantum coherent time evolution-is a quantitative understanding of the spin-flip processes which underpin the hopping of magnetic monopoles. We attack this problem in the framework of a quantum treatment of…

The low-temperature magnetic response of spin ice to time-varying magnetic fields is probed through stroboscopic neutron scattering and SQUID magnetometry on a new class of ultrapure Ho2Ti2O7 crystals to resolve apparent discrepancies between prior measurements on more disordered crystals and reveal a thermal crossover between distinct relaxation processes.

It is shown that the electric dipole moments inherent to the magnetic monopoles lift the degeneracy of their creation process and lead to a splitting of the pair-creation energy, which can explain the controversially discussed discrepancies between the measured temperature dependence of the magnetic relaxation times and previous theory.
We relate the anomalous noise found experimentally in spin ice to the subdiffusion of magnetic monopoles. Because monopoles are emergent particles, they do not move in a structureless vacuum. Rather,
